The LORD said to Moshe,
"Speak to the children of Yisra'el, and say to them, 'I am the LORD your God.
You shall not do as they do in the land of Mitzrayim, where you lived: and you shall not do as they do in the land of Kana`an, where I am bringing you; neither shall you walk in their statutes.
You shall do my ordinances, and you shall keep my statutes, and walk in them: I am the LORD your God.
You shall therefore keep my statutes and my ordinances; which if a man does, he shall live in them: I am the LORD.
"'None of you shall approach anyone who are his close relatives, to uncover their nakedness: I am the LORD.
"'You shall not uncover the nakedness of your father, nor the nakedness of your mother: she is your mother. You shall not uncover her nakedness.
"'You shall not uncover the nakedness of your father's wife: it is your father's nakedness.
